Mid-week

Good day every one.  Happy hump day to all of you too.

This week has been so nice and normal for a change.  I got my menus made out for the week and got all the groceries purchased on Sunday so I would have the week free to just cook and enjoy a low key week.

Monday was visit my Mom day and that went off without a hitch.  We have such a nice time together.  We visit and work on jigsaw puzzles together.  There is plenty of laughter and love too. 

In the evening I had a meeting with a couple of people to go over how we were going to do our presentation on Sunday at church.  I am still teaching our Catholic faith to those who are interested in finding out more about it.  Hubby and I have been doing this for the past 10 years.  Last year was the first year I decided to break away from him and start a teaching team of my own.  I think it has worked out well.  It has made me do more research in delve deeper into my faith too.  I have 2 new people wanting to teach shadowing me this year and I think they are going to be a fantastic asset to our teaching team.

Tuesday was a looooooong day.  Hubby has not been happy with his phone since he got it in June.  He switched from an iPhone to an Android and just could not grasp the change.  I had an upgrade available to me so we went to AT&T and traded my phone in, I took over his phone and he got a new iPhone SE.  He is so happy now.  And it only took FOUR flippin' hours to complete the transaction!!!!  The rest of the day was spent downloading all my apps back onto the phone and getting all my passwords set back up.  I finished it up this morning..Finally!

Today started out with us hauling LOTS of 'stuff' out of our house to the curb for a pick up by Big Brother, Big Sisters.  As we deep clean rooms, we make up bags of donations to go to a couple of different agencies.  That way, things that are still good and in working order don't just get dumped in the garbage.  That seems wasteful and I know of several folks that do that!  

I took off to the gym after eating a light breakfast.  Let me just do a little boasting......The gym has been my morning routine for 2 weeks now.  The weekends are the only 2 days I do not go.  The treadmill and I are becoming BFF's.  I am now up to over a mile in 30 minutes and am trying to get to the point where I can do 2-3 miles in 30 minutes.  The weight machines are still being used, but cardio is my main goal at this point.  It helps with weight loss and is lowering my blood pressure.  A win win situation, if you ask me.  You did ask, right?

The reason I know about my blood pressure lowering.........I had an appointment today with my PA for a blood pressure check.  I am well within normal range.  She is hoping that by January we can either lower or discontinue my blood pressure medicine.  It will depend on my continued working out and loosing weight.

While I was at the Dr's today, I also asked her to get rid of a wart that is on my middle finger. It has been there for the past couple of years and in the past week, has become very annoying.  In fact, I caught it on something the other day and it tore!  That hurt.  So she froze it..................Don't know why they call it freezing when it burned like crazy and is still burning.  Hopefully it will be all gone in the next couple of weeks.  If not................I get the joy of going back for another freezing session.  

Tonight is my weight watchers meeting.  I am looking forward to it.  I enjoy the instructor we have and the tips and ideas she gives each week.  This past week, we needed to keep track of our day and what we do each day and where we could have fit in "ME" time each day.  I am blessed that my hubby allows me to have "ME" time daily.  I have "ME" time each morning at the gym and then again each evening with my knitting while enjoying TV.

Tomorrow will be my visit with mom day again but Friday looks very free.  I know I said this week was normal and yet I was quite busy.  To me..............not having everyday booked up before the week begins means it is a normal week.  Things are always going to happen and I am able to go with the flow.........................most of the time.  

I think I will stop now and and go and work on my knitting for a while before my meeting tonight.

Until next time.....................happy crafting!
